TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – Two of the names that headlined Florida State’s Tuesday Pro Day were kicker Roberto Aguayo and defensive back Jalen Ramsey.
Other than Aguayo and Ramsey, 11 other players worked out for NFL scouts. Florida State has had a total of 36 draft picks since 2011 including seven first round picks.
In 2015, Jameis Winston was the first overall pick, the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of The Year and the highest draft pick to ever come out of Florida State.
Aguayo, who entered FSU as the sixth best kicker in the nation according to ESPN.com will now be leaving Florida State and entering the NFL as the most accurate kicker in NCAA history with an astounding conversion rate of .9673 (267-276). The promising kicker holds countless awards and records in the ACC division as well as the entire NCAA.
Aguayo will look to make an immediate impact on the team that selects him in this year’s draft.
Jalen Ramsey is a name that has been apart of many of the conversation for all the teams that are selecting picks 1-10. On day four of the NFL combine Jalen Ramsey (6’1, 202 LBS.) posted a 4.41 second 40-yard dash, a 41.5-inch vertical jump, and an 11-3 broad jump.
Coming into Florida State as a four-star prospect Ramsey has really proven himself these past years, and is projected to go top 10 in this years NFL draft.
“Its what I always dreamed of,“ Jalen Ramsey told reporters when asked about going first in the draft. “It’s what I worked for and I want them to pick me because I’m the best player in the draft.”
Ramsey who competed in all 13-games in the 2015 season was selected to the ALL-ACC first team and Sports Illustrated ALL-American second-team, these are just a few of his many accomplishments during his years at Florida State.
“You’re going to get championship effort every day,” Fisher told reporters. “You got a guy that’s very intelligent who can process the game, who is very physical and tough mentally and physically. And you got a great athlete. But you have a guy that wants to win not only every game, he wants to win every play.
Now the 13-players that are projected to leave Florida State will have to wait until Thursday, April 28th for their names to be selected to enter the National Football League.
